inside view of this relationship and i think just the title is a strong indictment towards the u.s. and pakistan. you say that the relationship, entail of exaggerated expectations and broken promises and disastrous misunderstandings, i would like to delve into what you mean by that little later in the interview. at first i'm asking you a simple question. what motivated you to write this book? >> guest: this book has been on my mind for so many years. i was a college student in 1979. several of my colleagues, as in students, burned it down the u.s. embassy and people also wanted to go down to the u.s. consulate in berlin that done as well. all of this had taken place when the holiest mosque and shrine of government had been taken down. so people just went berserk. and i was someone who said no, we can't do this, we have to wait. we burned down the building, we won't be able to on verdict on the next day. if we wait, we could find out that the americans are not involved. because of that come i was always wondering why the pakistanis have this knee-jerk anti-americanism. because what
th region that the u.s. military, u as you said, in addition to to being an unmatched fighting force, also brings unmatched logistical capabilities. which they use, unfortunately al have to use quite often in the f region for disaster response. i think that's gone widely noticed. i wouldn't want to speculate on why the chinese have responded the way they have. i do know at some point d philippine authorities suggestet there was no need for further gd medical equipment and support, r whether that played a role on ma the hospital ship not coming, i'm not sure. ship i think the more important point from our perspective is by doing the right thing, we've seen seen in the region as doing the righe thing.st >> well, just my editorial comment to close, and i don't expect you to respond to it, bur we have this debate going on in this country how engaged the u.s. needs to be around the world diplomatically in aid programs, and of course militarily with our presence. this is an example what would mi happen if the u.s. did retreat e from the global stage.. there is no substitute for the united
>> in addition to announcing a review of u.s. ties, the pakistani government also summoned the u.s. ambassador to warn of a standoff and less drone attacks ceased. also financing the strike from the leading pakistani opposition leader imran kahn proposed a ban on nato supply trucks inside pakistan. ofn accused the u.s. sabotaging the peace talks. >> i feel sad that just as the dialogue was about to start take, those who are still part in the talks, were killed yesterday. >> the pakistani taliban has sayed asly picked kahn its new leader. the suspect in friday's armed attack at the los angeles international airport could face the death penalty for shooting dead a transportation security administration officer and wounding five other people. is charged with murdering a federal officer and committing violence at an international airport. the head of the police at lax described the attack. >> at 9:20 this morning, in individual came into terminal 3 of this airport, pulled an assault rifle out of a bag and began to open fire in the terminal. he proceeded up into the screening area wher
to measure the outputs. to find out what the u.s. gets back from it. at the same time, the kind of investment that the united states makes to use an example of sending african american jazz musicians overseas, necessarily contrasts with the realities of what the u.s.'s civil rights record was at the time. and certainly it becomes something that looks less credible in the minds of a lot of foreign publics, when the u.s.'s actual face looks extremely militaryized. and it's very difficult to overcome that. >> spencer our community is coming in here. here is howard . . . willow you are at the fault line here. you are a very well-known writer. you speak arabic and have an egyptian husband. oftentimes do you feel the burden of being a global cultural ambassador who has to bridge the dieds? >> i try not to think about it in those terms. in order to make good art, one has to be true first and foremost to the story it is trying to tell. so that has been my experience. i always try to be conscious of the fact that whatever you do, and no matter what you do, you do represent your own community to both b
or not we should be putting nuclear power plants with u.s. cooperation in countries like vietnam knowing without proper protection there could be catastrophic consequences that flow from the interaction of a natural disaster and a nuclear power plant that is not as strong or well positioned as it could be. we just saw that in japan. they are going to be going several generations with the consequences of a natural disaster link to nuclear power plants. so from my perspective, i want to congratulate everyone who participated in helping, especially in these early stages of relief. but i think for usaid, for the state department, for the defense department, i think that we all have to come together in a way that deals with the national security consequences s of climate change. the impact that it's having upon our allies and our enemies that modifies their behavior in terms of how they are able to, in fact, control their own environment. and understand then what the consequences are for our national security because theirs is undermined. so again, it's just one more warning. if we needed it,

transparency is urgently necessary to restore the international community's trust in the u.s. government and in our u.s. internet industry, which is projected to lose tens if'll hundreds of billions of dollars in the face of widespread concern from foreign governments and international users. we must take this opportunity to demonstrate that our surveillance practices are necessary and proportionate and respectful of constitutional and human rights. and if the numbers show otherwise we must take this opportunity to reform our surveillance laws as well as better protect our rights and national security. speaking of national security there are two basic arguments why publishing these numbers would threaten it, but neither is persuasive. first there's concern that such reporting will reveal which services have not been targeted by the u.s. government such that our enemies will seek them out. however, it has always been the case companies that haven't received national security demands can say they have not received national security demands as was most recently demonstrated just last week w
